Refactory is an early adopter of the latest and greatest DevOps technologies. Because of this, they are able to quickly and efficiently help many customers overcome seemingly difficult and complex problems.
I helped Refactory to update their Ansible playbooks and roles to new and higher standards, therefor increasing scalability and maintainability. The playbooks will now be automatically checked whether they conform to the Coding Style guidelines aswell as valid syntax. A number of custom rules were developed in Python.
I also extended the playbooks to be able to run PHP applications with dedicated user accounts and roll out new websites automatically. Additionally, servers can now be updated automatically and will export statistics to Prometheus.
